Signing Atheists

I was going to set up a group for Deaf Atheists, but figured I'd probably be alone in here if I did that so I figured I'd open it to anyone who knows sign language or even interested in learning it.

I'm curious about how fellow atheists celebrate the Winter Solstice holiday season if at all, especially those of you who who have children.



For me I haven't really celebrated the solstice in years. Last year was the first time I celebrated the holiday. My son who was 6 months old at the time and I flew out to Pennsylvania in January for a late Xmas celebration with his mother. I say "Xmas" because his mother is a devout Christian and that's obviously what the holiday is to her. This… Continue

What makes former atheists switch sides become theists? Were they really atheists in the first place or do the likes of people such as Lee Strobel simply claim former atheism in an attempt to give their theism more credibility? Or an attempt to lure real atheists into theism by claiming to have solid enough evidence to convince an atheist of the supernatural? Are there really any true atheists who become theists by choice?



Atheists switching sides seems far outside the realm of logic… Continue

Atheist scholars believe in a historical Jesus???

Posted on February 21, 2009 at 12:00am 13 Comments

I've been debating on and off with Christians in the blog of Rev. Brian Zahnd. Most recently I've been arguing with the Reverend himself in his post titled Knowing and Believing. In the comments following his post I mentioned that I didn't believe that a historical Jesus ever existed. Rev. Zahnd was shocked by my statement and claimed that he had never heard a single scholar make that… Continue

Thanks DeafAtheist, it's nice to meet you too! :-) Yes, it's true, I don't meet too many deaf atheists. I did meet at least one other deaf atheist, and I heard about a second deaf atheist, so I did know prior to finding your group on Atheist Nexus that I wasn't the only one out there.

I bet you'd like "Blasphemy," the movie. I posted it to Youtube a while back, with subtitles. It's hilarious! :o)

DeatAtheist, please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.

This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only.
